Let us look at the meaning of a phrase or two. The mustard seed is very small. It is the yellow one in the packet of
canary seed. It is used in Jewish law to illustrated the principal of Law that has been adopted by every culture every since – the law is not concerned with minute matters. For example, if you cut yourself and blood was to flow, you
would be unable to take part in temple worship. But if the cut was as small as a mustard seed, then it doesn’t matter. This rule of thumb made the mustard seed famous. Not because it is the smallest seed, but because it became the practical example of a minimum amount. (The seed of the largest tree in the world, a Californian sequoia, is one of the smallest!!!!!)
Commitment and surrender to the Lord requires us to use the abundance of faith that we have. Faith is of course necessary. If the Lord gives the call, He gives the power!! WE ARE MERELY SERVANTS.
